Sunday 1st April 2012 - Afternoon

A new bird for me on site today a lone Egyptian Goose picking about on the mud, possibly one of last summers Wolverton Mill birds.

Other than that the focus was on waders, at least five Little Ringed Plovers on site now, two Redshank, the Oystercatcher pair and a lone Green Sandpiper, favouring one of the every decreasing puddles on the new landscaped area. A single Little Egret was also in the shallows.

A few Teal and Wigeon remain but the influx of caravans over the Ouse at Cosgrove Park means no clear view of the lake their till the complex shuts at the end of October.
